10 journey hacks to outlive early morning flights

These early morning flights are normally cheaper too so I really feel like I’ve acquired a double winner with a discount flight and an additional day on vacation!

However then you definately think about that it’s essential to get to the airport 2 hours early…and it takes an hour to get there…and also you need 20 minutes as a ‘simply in case’ buffer…and 20 minutes to prepare…

Yea, you’re getting up fairly early for that 6am flight! 

However worry not, I’ve acquired some tricks to make the early morning flight slightly simpler and belief me once I say that it’s completely price it!

Simplify your morning by having your flight outfit laid out and able to go. Even when what you’re sporting, simply get it out. 

There’s nothing worse than realising the highest you wished to put on is soiled when it’s 2am and all of your different t-shirts are already packed in your suitcase.

I’m a fan of holding my aircraft outfit tremendous easy and I all the time put on my favorite leggings and a comfy hoodie with a cap and ladies’s operating trainers.

In case you’re the sort of one that must eat as quickly as they rise up then make in a single day oats. It’s a easy, wholesome and scrumptious breakfast that truly tastes higher when it’s been chilling within the fridge for a couple of hours.

I normally make this in a disposable tub (get them on Amazon) and eat it as soon as I get to the airport.

I make my in a single day oats by mixing a banana with milk, vanilla protein powder and greek yoghurt. I then add my oats and pop them right into a pot with some berries and honey on prime and that is so good for the morning!

I then try to drink all of it earlier than I’m going by way of airport safety so not less than I’m starting my journey hydrated. I’ll refill it once more at a fountain or espresso store on the airport.
